is through economic growth. this is an ideological battle between the parties. romney and republicans believe that economic activity will create growth, which will create more tax revenue. but the clip you showed from the president was the one saying basically how do you make this add up? gwen: he said he's going to makee of it add up by cutting pbs, which is 1/100 of the feral government's budget. >> the president was specific too about a $ 0il break. the things they're talking about are so specific you need a magnifying glass to find of this is defined plan. when the president talks about $5 trillion, he's talking about five tax breaks that romney has already promised so it's the estate tax plus a.m.t. plus keeping bush, plus lowering rates plus cutting capital gains taxes. you put them together, they add up to 5 trillion but in romney's mind his plan may be just saving the bush tax cuts or one of these five. >> what obama has done is landfalled onto a study that says because the math doesn't add up according to th experts, therefore what romney is going to do is raise taxes on the middle c
, there are a lot of republicans were willing to start writing off mitt romney if he didn't do welcome. i mean, there really were. and they were worried that his fund raising might fall off and there would be a big problem. so, is there new momentum, new optimism on the republican side? >> no worries about the fund raising dropping off now, i tell you that. i mean, you have not seen this much enthusiasm for mitt romney since he's ever run, going back to 2008. but i think because he went out there and talked about ideas, this is what the republicans have been arguing he needed to do all along because you can't say it's a choice you've got to prove it's a choice. that's what he did in denver. the most important thing he did, he explained the choices very clearly. he talked about things like growth versus tax hikes, about free market health care versus obamacare and that was the way he needed to explain it to the electorate. >> paul: jason? >> it was a very substantive debate. he did layout some ideas and some plans and that's a good thing, but i think these debates were also about more than subs

and most republicans are steering clear of the former ceo's comments including mitt romney. the republican nominee says many of the new jobs are only part time. and that's not what a real recovery looks like. >> even those that have jobs are having tough times. the middle class is being squeezed with higher and higher costs and with incomes that have gone down. >> reporter: the report was good news on wall street but investors remain wary. >> it's all everyone saying here we go everything is turning the corner. it's not! >> reporter: but history says the latest jobs report could play a part in the election. no president has been re- elected with unemployment above 8% since the great depression. tara mergener for cbs news, the white house. >>> one of the hottest fashion brands in the world opened its first store in the west coast today. hundreds waited in line to go into uniqlo in san francisco's union square. the chain started in japan and attracts a wide variety of customers. >> so this is the hottest thing going right now this flannel shirt? >> yeah. this is a good shirt for the fall an
, the problem is if you don't have a mandate for health care which is what mitt romney and republicans want, they don't want to have the mandate, but -- >> except in massachusetts. >> people want to get health insurance, you can't have a system in which you never sign up and you don't pay and then you wait until you're sick because insurance companies can't turn down. that's the problem republicans have. >> that's not what he said, ari. >> now, policy gets complicated. it's harder to talk on a short show like this. it's easier to talk about it in the length of the debate but let me remind you, in 2008, president obama ran when he was trying to get to the left of hillary clinton saying he opposed nafta. he ran on that in ohio. then as soon as the ohio primary was done, he never talked again about renegotiating nafta. we found out later he sent a top aide to canada to say ignore -- >> we got to go. one at a time. one at a time. let ari finish, please. >> both candidates have engaged in tactical maneuvering. this is nothing new. >> i guess i'm not saying it's anything new and i'm not saying bo
the polls were particularly dire for the republican presidential candidate mitt romney in the election, presidential election polling this past month conservatives decided these polls showing an american electorate that is choosing president obama over mitt romney, these polls made them feel so uncomfortable they decided to develop a new fantasy electorate that they would poll in theory and their fantasy electorate which is not the real electorate would give them a much more comforting list of results in terms of their fake polls. it was the same dynamic at work when they invented conservative-a-pedia. something you read about the world on wikipedia, if it makes you uncomfortable as a conservative, conservative-a-pedia is guaranteed to only contain information that makes you feel okay. if you are discomfited by the idea the human species is a result of millenia of evolution for example conserve-a-pedia has you covered. not only has it been debunked by the obvious fact that humans and dinosaurs co-existed, but in fact according to conserve-a-pedia dinosaurs are actually still here and h
. a lot more of romney's money is found in the wallet of the republican national committee, and smaller money is found in the democratic national committee. what's that mean? if you use money from the democratic or republican national committees, you have to use what are are called combo ads in which you not only mention obama, but also democrats, or not just romney, but other republicans. it weakens the ad, the way of the power of the ad a little bit. we have an important -- lou: you feel good? go ahead. >> i do think that obama has an advantage in that more of his money is in -- is in a wallet from which he can spend easily, get the lowest rate, and control the message better than can romney. lou: not concerned about the fundraising? >> oh, i'm concerned about it. i think it's a real problem because, look, you have not talked about the big, you know, the big gorilla in the room, and that is organized labor, which will pump $400 million to $450 million into the race like four years ago. obama here, romney here, outside groups on behalf of romney evening it up, and labor comes in like t
voting for mitt romney, think alabama republicans. on the day of his inauguration, alabama's current republican governor robert bentley said, quote, so anybody here today who has not accepted jesus christ as your savior, i'm telling you, you're not my brother and you're not my sister. inauguration day. the last time we had a senator who wrote and did a speech about how slavery was not only justified by the bible, he said the really underappreciated thing about slavery in the united states was how good slavery was for black people. this was in 1996, not 1896. and the reaction by alabama republicans, well, they just kept him around. he stayed in the state senate for two more years after the slavery was good for black people thing. why not? why get rid of him? what's the problem? last year when demonstrators came to alabama to protest its draconian new anti-immigrant law, the party chairman told the press, "this is reminiscent of others coming into our state to cause trouble." imagine that, huh? the mitt romney for president campaign is about to get the benefit of a self-proclaimed depl

the republican party of alabama is why you should vote for mitt romney. undecided ohio voter, meet a busful of alabama republicans. what could possibly go wrong? i wonder if they will have matching hats. that does it for us tonight. now it's time for a special live friday edition of "the last word." have a great night. >> we have hit the point in the election where people begin to lose their minds. the jobless rate fell below 8% in september which is good news for president obama and a new conspiracy theory for some republicans. >> we've had 43 straight months with unemployment above 8%. >> a major victory for president obama. >> the white house got some welcome news. >> the unemployment rate has fallen who its lowest level since i took office. >> this is excellent news. >> it's definitely a good day for the american economy. >> 7.8. >> 7.8. >> there's no way that's right. >> there are some people out here who don't like this number. >> the harsh back and forth. >> over today's jobs reports. >> now we've sea got jobbers. >> business pioneer jack welch calls these numbers into question. >> t
the republicans are very happy at this moment including the top team around mitt romney. >> where was obama tonight? >> there you go. mainstream and liberal media are shocked, shocked. the president didn't win. >> right. chris matthews went on to say, if only the president had been watching my show. [ laughter ] >> look. this was one of those epic political masters. jay leno said it best, only the replacement refs think president obama had a good night. >> jon: the comment that challengers always get a boost. nobody seemed to want to say mitt romney won because mitt romney won. >> it was amazing even msnbc had to carry on as if someone in the family had died. it was as piston irk but it was a rare moment of consensus in the press because the press basically agreed romney had won. that must have been painful to admit that but it was obvious. >> jon: they were waiting for a mitt romney gaffe. they were going to pounce upon that and it didn't happen? >> no, it certainly did not. i was not one of the mainstream liberal media but middle stream liberal media that was very upset how the presidenti
with republicans but with undecided voters? >> i think it helped some, but the person who helped governor romney most was governor romney. on wednesday night, he was before almost 70 million people, a lot of them undecided voters trying to make up their mind. he made a very clear case that, you know, he is someone who can connect. i thought the thing that was most shocking to me was the fact that the governor -- you know, the president has said to be better liked, more likable, better able to connect with voters, and it seemed to me as though the governor did a better job at doing those thingsn wednesday night than the president. so i think he helped himself tremendously. >> i want you to take a look at this poll with me. this is a quinnipiac poll. there it is. there you go. likely voters, who cares about the needs and problems of the people like you was the question. obama 60%. romney 46%. what do you make of those numbers? >> i think we'll have to see how those numbers change over the course of the next few weeks i don't know that those numbers actually reflect what voters got to see. the pres
the next president will be. and republicans have said that this next candidate, mitt romney, cannot win the white house if he can't get at least 40% of the latino vote. he's nowhere near that right now, randi, so this should be a big problem for republicans. >> amy, latinos say that the democrats have done a much better job in terms of reaching out to latinos and minority voters. what, if anything, do republicans need to do to turn around that perception? is it too late? >> well, interestingly, during the conventions, president obama, he outspent mitt romney 7-1, but the spending that mitt romney did do during his convention was mostly in hispanic media. so you see the romney campaign is very aggressively trying to court and reach out to hispanic voters. but let me get to this 40% number that maria threw out there. in fact, george bush did win in 2000 with 35% of the hispanic vote, depending on who you're talking to in 2004, he won between 41% and 44%, and that was really surprising. that was a high water mark. because last mid-term election, interestingly, in 2010, you had record hispa
with what they hope to be new republican voters. it is a $12 million boost into the debate for mitt romney and stands in the face of staggering numbers from the barack obama campaign reporting last month they collected over $181 million. that does not rival what obama did four years ago in october, before the 2008 presidential election, but is still a massive amount of money, last night, talking to the romney campaign and the big fund-raising dollars the obama campaign was putting up, romney staffers smiled as if to suggest they might top it. >> arthel: and also a statement, romney pushing his tax policy, this weekend, right? >> reporter: of course in the wake of the debate in which the romney campaign it really defined the race, a choice between a dependency society with rising taxes that could hurt the recovery, versus the romney agenda which could cut taxes and rely fully on a smaller government and individual responsibility and entrepreneurial spirit and the romney campaign is attacking ever harder. here's a sample from last night. >> it has been calculated his tax plan raising taxes w
's a recurrent theme. with mitt romney the recurrent theme among republicans, the reason he doesn't have a lot of frentsds in his party is the idea that he's a vicious debater. newt gingrich called him a liar in which he demolished supposedly the best debater in the republican party and he is known to be a flip-flopper. what did he do in that debate, he flip-flopped. everybody played the type. >> dedrick's point is smart about mitt romney in some ways was the beneficiary of lowered expectations and the beneficiary of the success of the obama campaign as painting him as a character of a ba foonish budocrat. by the time john kerry took the debate stage the bush campaign had done such a good job of making him look like a ridiculous figure and then he came out and it was like, oh, right, this is a smart, competent individual who spent his life in the united states senate. it was the same thing with mitt romney. it was a reminder for all of the characture and for all the reasons he would make a terrible president, he is not an idiot and a ba foon. he can show up at a debate and attack. >> as joanne
romney had been held considered lukewarm in terms of the republican base early on in this. has that changed now? >> it has, indeed, lester. the romney campaign is trying to use the momentum from his debate performance to fire up that base and it seems to be working as well as motivating his grassroots organization. that effort was slightly blunted by the jobs numbers, one of his talking point, but the campaign is clearly feeling a lot of energy. the biggest change is they have a coherent message, one message. why would the next four years be any different than the current four years? the problem for team obama, the president didn't make that case for himself when he had 70 million people at the debate and now they'll take down mitt romney with fact-checking and challenging what he said in the debate in advertisements and speeches, but they will not have that same, large audience. >> peter noted that later in the week, the vice presidential debate will take place. could that be a potential game changer given the uneven debate we just saw this past week? >> normally the vice pres
since he took office. jonathan martin was on the ground for the debate in denver. you say romney took the debate stage with the top republican verging on panic. did this turnaround for them? >> they are backing away from the edge. there is no question that this was a make or break moment for governor romney. if he had not shown up like he did in denver, you would have seen a really ugly scene here. a lot of folks in his party would have backed away from him. this puts him back in the game, it restores confidence among other people running for the house and senate this year who are now happy to be seen with him. it gives them a real boost when they desperately need it. he still has problems and a lot of swing states. this puts them back in the game, it turns around the narrative. i am curious to see the next wave of polling. if he is closing the gap in the swing states, there will be immense pressure on president obama to show up in the second debate. >> the president's critics have said that he was essentially sleepwalking through history here, like he wanted to be somewhere else. >>
republican-leaning polls, but nonetheless you have romney winning in both of them in florida. >> they are both robo pollsters as well. and this is not necessarily reliable. i would wait a few day, but florida has been close all along. these are within the margin. i think we will be watching florida every day, every week until election day. >> jennifer: let's look at ohio. now in this rasmussen is only up by one point. he has been ahead by as much as 10 points ahead. >> i don't buy these yet. we ask america has had polls a all over the map this year. so i would wait and see -- >> jennifer: when you say they have a republican skew is that because they are oversampling republicans? >> yes, and because they are robo pollers, it is way too easy to get older voters. so you have to see how the more legitimate live pollsters are doing. >> jennifer: okay. virginia rasmussen has romney leading as does ask america, this a key state. and this number is not very helpful. >> yeah, i think like florida, virginia is a true swing state. so i'm not too surprised to see this
, it was wrong for president obama not to say, mitt romney, are you calling out the republicans who are voting for the jobs bill in the senate? president obama left a whole bunch of stuff on the table that he could have brought up. he absolutely should have asked him about it because it's a central issue when you talk about where we stand in this country. i simply say to aili, i know hes your guy. >> he's even saying preexistent conditions will be covered, but people who lose their job can keep their health insurance for a time. that's not what people think of when they think of a preexisting condition. >> it's something that when republicans repeal obamacare and try to replace it, they'll have to come up with that replacement so people don't gain in the system -- >> so was he lying or mistaken about his own policy? sd >> there is a provision in there, anderson, that will cover a portion of the people who don't have health insurance. if you paid your premiums and you have health insurance, you can't be turned down. what he's talking about is gaining a system where you never sign up for health
on it. all of this pressure turns into real big money for republican politicians. mitt romney himself gained $120,000 in support from murray employees alone. in 2007, since 2007 employees of murray energy and its subsidiaries along with their families and the murray pac, well, they have contributed over $1.4 million to republican candidates for federal office. murray's fundraisers have benefited the likes of scott brown, rand paul, david vitter, carly fiorina, and jim demint down at south carolina. murray's pac is also lending a big hand to who? josh mandel in ohio who is of course going after sherrod brown in the senate race in the buckeye state. let's turn to alec mcgillis, a writer for "the new republic." his report, "coal miners donor" details robert murray's efforts to pressure his employees into donating to republican causes. great to have you with us tonight. appreciate your time. >> thanks for having me. >> you had i understand several sources come forward and tell you about this pressure to contribute. what surprised you the most? what did you find out? >> i guess i was surpr
of the president, the republicans and the governor, governor romney's campaign thought they had momentum. this now i would say has popped that balloon in a significant way and allows the president now to go out there as he did today in a very forceful way and make the argument that the country is moving in the right direction. you do not want to take us back in the wrong direction. >> you know, in a lame duck session of the congress we had this big discussion about the bush tax cuts. the republicans are so far off their game right now their reaction today should have been well we told president obama to extend the bush tax cuts. you can't raise taxes on the job creators. they don't even know their own talking points. what do they do now? they come out and accuse the president and the bureau of labor statistics of cooking the books. what is the new 7.8 unemployment mean for obama's campaign strategy moving forward to get him re-elected? what does this mean for him? >> well, it gives him an opportunity to really paint the picture that we didn't do, he didn't do effectively in the debate. to me, now
